In praise (again) of my Awesome Wife

It seems my wife can do pretty much anything. Right now she's making tortilla dough from scratch for a "papusa" recipe she found online. That's after she made banana bread and coconut pancakes for breakfast. Oh yeah, and awesome pasta last night. And all of the stuff has been vegan for Lent.

Yesterday, she finished a heavy edit of her 200-page book and it's up for an award at Mills college. Shhh. Don't tell her that I told you. She gets very self-conscious about these kind of things.

She is also artsy, photographic, and inspiring. I say, "Wanna go for a walk?" She hops and says, "Yeeeaahh!" We're in the park five minutes later and she pulls out this antique camera and starts taking pictures of flowers and the sun and stuff:

Earlier today she was a Tazmanian-devil-in-reverse, furiously sorting every imaginable thing in our room... in less than an hour! I am little help in these times as I tend to get wrapped up in the first paper that crosses my path, reading it as though it is a lost treasure from the ancient past. Observe her incredulity as I snapped a photo of her frenzied cleaning:

But my personal favorite of the day has to be the Easter card one of her students made. Yes, did I forget to mention? ...she is also teaches art. She had her students make cards for prisoners, to help brighten the season. She opted not to send this one:

Yes. My wife is awesome. Unquestionably.


  1. Aw, this made me laugh! I miss you guys! Hope you are doing well!

  2. I ditto Lizzie! :)

    Also. Zak. It's masa, not "tortilla dough", when you're making pupusas, not tortillas ;-) New favorite cookbook (borrow it from SFPL): Viva Vegan! by Terry Hope Romero

  3. LOL. Thank you, Cora. I'm glad to finally know what I'm actually eating. Haha.

  4. Agreed. Your wife is awesome. Luckily, so are you!

  5. stay happy n blessed :)
